Wikki Stix Review & Giveaway!

We were given the chance to review Wikki Stix along with the Early Learning Trio which includes Alphabet Cards, Number Cards and Basic Shapes

  
All of my children have enjoyed playing with the Wikki Stix!  The girls have really enjoyed using them for school projects, making jewelry and to make models of different animals.  Alpha Boy loves to open his workboxes and find a few Wikki Stix and activity cards, I think he especially loves the letter and number cards.  Little Bits, well he has really enjoyed chewing on them and making them into balls to bounce on the floor.   
Things We Love About Wikki Stix
  • They leave plenty of room to let your imagination run wild!   The possibilities of things to make are endless.  REALLY! 
  • They are a great way to help children learn their letters, numbers and shapes.
  • Wikki Stix are fun to use to make models of things you are studying in school like the muscular system, the shape of different states and solar systems.  You can see some other fabulous educational ideas here.
  • I love how the kids can play and make all kinds of stuff and their isn't a huge mess to clean up.  That is a huge bonus!  Let me say it one more time HUGE BONUS!
  • The Wikki Stix and the activity sets are very affordable.  The Wikki Stix sets start at $3.25.  The Activity Card Sets start at $13.95.  Think holiday gifts or stocking stuffers!

Here are some of the things we did with our Wikki Stix...

During our pyramids study the girls made their own pyramids.
Since the Wikki Stix are made off wax coated wicks they were very easy to build different things with.
  
Computer Girl using the Alphabet Cards, she is tracing the letter B and the butterfly.

Alpha Boy used the Wikki Stix to trace many of the letters.

The girls and I were studying the muscular system and we used the Wikki Stix to demonstrate where muscles are in our body.

We had a lot of fun using the Wikki Stix and this hands on project helped us to remember what we learned.

I really would love to own a bulk class pack or big count box, so all 8 of my kids could really be creative with them. I do have them on my list to buy for Christmas, though I'll likely have to settle for a smaller package.

On the Wikki Stix site, I was really surprised to see all they offer! My DD would love the "Create a Card" kit, and my ocean crazy DS would, of course, go crazy for the "oceans of fun Kit".
